20100145134Device for Treatment of Stuttering and Its Use - The invention relates to a portable listening system comprising a microphone device for picking up a person's voice and a listening device comprising a receiver. The invention further relates to the use of such system. The object of the present invention is to provide a portable device for treatment of stuttering. The problem is solved in that the system being adapted to pick up the voice of a person wearing the portable system by the microphone device, converting the voice to an own voice electrical signal, to transmit the own voice electrical signal to the listening device, to receive the own voice electrical signal in the listening device and to play it for the person by the receiver with a delay. An advantage of the invention is that it provides a flexible body worn system suitable for treatment of stuttering. The invention may e.g. be used for applications involving listening devices to be worn by a person to be treated for stuttering.06-10-2010
20110028777FREQUENCY ALTERED FEEDBACK FOR TREATING NON-STUTTERING PATHOLOGIES - Methods and devices treat treating non-stuttering pathologies having impaired or decreased communication skills by administering a frequency altered auditory feedback signal to a subject having a non-stuttering pathology while the subject is speaking or talking to thereby improve the subject's communication skills.02-03-2011
20110257464Electronic Speech Treatment Device Providing Altered Auditory Feedback and Biofeedback - A device and method for improving speech. One embodiment comprises an apparatus and method for treating stuttering by providing biofeedback to monitor aspects of the user's voice and also providing altered audio feedback (AAF) to induce fluent speech. Biofeedback features include monitoring phonated intervals. AAF features include delayed auditory feedback (DAF), frequency-altered auditory feedback (FAF), and switching the user's voice between his or her left and right ears multiple times per second. The biofeedback controls AAF parameters including volume, which changes smoothly. Bluetooth is also included to connect to wireless microphones and earphones. Another embodiment comprises an apparatus and method for use by persons without speech disabilities for the purpose of improving public speaking by providing their voice back to their ears altered to appear to be in a different emotional state, thus inducing this preferred emotional state in the person speaking.10-20-2011
20120130154Voice Volume Modulator - A small, compact voice volume monitor has been developed that provides feedback to the speaker/user regarding the volume of the user's speech. The monitor is based on a sensing sound vibrations in the ear bone during speech and converting these vibrations into an electrical signal reflecting the speech volume. Electronic circuitry is then used to compare the intensity of this signal with pre-set reference levels. When the intensity of the signal is outside the reference levels for a set amount of time, feedback is provided to the user, for example, from a small vibratory motor.05-24-2012
20120289766STUTTERING INHIBITION METHOD AND DEVICE - A method and device is disclosed for reducing and controlling stuttering. The method involves tactile feedback of the stutterer's own speech to reducing stuttering. In one embodiment, the device may detect speech by audible or mechanical means, and the feedback may be produced by vibration mechanisms.11-15-2012

20130066164MEDICAL INSTRUMENT - To provide a medical instrument for enabling a functional portion provided at the front end of the instrument to be attached and detached to be disposable, while enabling the angle to be adjusted freely to ensure excellent visual recognition, in a medical instrument 03-14-2013
20100036206Apparatus and method for self-administered maintenance of an ostomy - An apparatus is configured to straddle a patient's legs or torso when in a reclined position, and includes a mirror located in a position elevated above a treatment site of a stoma for angularly directing an image as reflected from an overhead vantage of the site to the patient for viewing while in a reclined position.02-11-2010
20080300468System and apparatus for inspection of feet - A collapsible apparatus operable for enabling a person to self-inspect the soles of the person's feet or for enabling another person to inspect the soles of the person's feet when the person is in a seated position. The apparatus includes bifurcated vertical walls comprising an upper portion and a lower portion wherein the upper and lower portions of the vertical walls are connected to one another by extendable means operable for enabling a person to conveniently transport the apparatus in a collapsed configuration and rapidly reconfigure the apparatus for use.12-04-2008

20080275291Acceleration Protection Suit - An acceleration protection suit having a sparingly extensible outer layer with veins running essentially along a bodily axis of a wearer which deforms when pressurized in such a way as to generate a tension in the sparingly extensible outer layer, with which pressure can be exerted on the wearer to offset G-forces. Means are provided for tightening and adjusting the protective suit to the wearer. At least part of the veins are permeable to gas at least in spots on a side facing the wearer so that the wearer can be air-conditioned by exiting gas when the veins are pressurized.11-06-2008
